Teach at Bonne Bay

Field teaching is widely considered to be the most effective form of teaching in the natural sciences. The combination of having the rapt attention of your class, the intensive nature of the teaching along with fresh air and beautiful scenery is as compelling as it is memorable.

Bonne Bay Marine Station is ideally situated for the running of field schools, surrounded as we are by the mantle-rocks of Gros Morne National Park, as well as Bonne Bay itself with its diverse biology, archeology and rick communities. Every year we host several courses for the Department of Biology at Memorial University, but we are also happy to have groups from other institutions.

Palaeontology in the field

If you are interested in running a pre-existing course at our site, or designing a completely new one, do feel free to get in touch. We are well connected with the research community, as well as with the scientists at Gros Morne National Park and can help steer you towards whatever information or connections you might need.

We can provide most of what any field course might need including accommodation, food, equipment, a laboratory space with a fume hood, and a modern comfortable lecture theatre. Our boats are also available to your class, just ask for a schedule of fees.
